High school / secondary education (or higher)
• a senior high school diploma with a good average grade (min. CGPA >60 %),
• maximum 3 years after high school graduation is eligible,
• minimum average grade (CGPA) > 60 % in each entry subject: final exams of Mathematics and Physics.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Russian.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
The documents must be legalised (Apostille)by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country where the documents were issued. This requirement does not apply for the documents issued in the EU and Belarus, Ukraine.
You must take verified copies of the entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.

If your previous studies have been fully in English and it is marked on your degree certificate or transcript, or noted in a confirmation from the school which confirms that your studies have been fully in English language, additional English test may not be required.
If an applicant does not have any official test, online examination may be organised by KTU.
Specific requirements for Non-EU applicants:
Maximum gap after high / secondary school or later studies cannot be more than 3 years.
Focused on professional experience at aviation companies, the programme leads through gradual learning about processes underlying the principles of aerodynamics, materials used to build aerial vehicles, aerial vehicle structures and types, their behaviour in flight and development of abilities in aerial vehicle design, building and maintenance as well as dealing with a number of other aspects related to creative engineering activity in aviation.
Programme implementation options by choosing the model of extended practice at aviation companies:
- Aircraft and aircraft system design engineer (General Aviation Engineering Practice (30 ECTS), extensive subjects in the field of Aeronautical Engineering (18 ECTS) and Professional Practice (12 ECTS);
- Aircraft Maintenance Specialist General Aviation Engineering Practice (30 ECTS) and Aircraft Maintenance Practice (30 ECTS).
Top reasons to study at KTU:
1. The first in Europe cluster of aeronautical engineering companies and educational institutions has been created in Lithuania with the lead of KTU in 2016.
2. The hands-on experience is gained using specialised research equipment at the University and at the aviation companies in Lithuania.
3. The students may choose 2 semesters of extended practice in an aviation company to deepen their specialisation skills and solve real industry problems.
Design and modernisation of aircrafts, their systems and elements
Types, constructions and systems of aircrafts
Aerodynamics of aircrafts and flight dynamic Design of aircrafts
Determination and assurance of functionality and reliability of aircrafts and their systems
Modern technologies of aircraft manufacturing
Nondestructive testing methods
Expertise in aircraft maintenance technologies and processes, their selection and management
Technical maintenance of aircrafts
Knowledge in safety and legal regulations applying to engineering activities in aviation
Human factors in aviation
The lack of aviation engineers and specialists of technical maintenance of the aircrafts is a constantly increasing problem both in Lithuania and in the entire world; therefore, graduates of this programme have excellent prospects for an international career in various stages: engineers-mechanics and engineers-constructors > licenced aviation engineers and aviation specialists > executive/quality/training managers of airlines.
_ “Graduates of this programme, who understand basic and line maintenance of various aircrafts, engineering support and planning of technical maintenance, who provide services to the biggest modern aircrafts Boeing 747 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner at the aircraft technical maintenance centre in Kaunas have excellent prospects of international career in the engineering area.”_ – AB “FL Technics” Aircraft Maintenance Centre in Kaunas, Manager Martynas Grigalavičius.
